Spring has sprung, just about.. So time for a rebrand of Bake Love.
I loved the old design, layout and drawings, but felt it need a smarter, more refined image, I still wanted to keep the vintage country kitchen look, so set about coming up with some ideas.
All my inspiration comes from my vintage kitchen. There are so many great items and they deserve to be in the design.
As with all of my cooking. Dolly was a focal item, as was Hilda, the egg hen. Other great bits are my scales. I have just bought some old flour sack fabric called ticking strip. A lovely old cotton material with simple rough stripes. The old sacks also have fantastic stamped logos.
I wanted to do something simple and classic. So I set about doing some primary drawings.
From the drawings I thought about making stencils, in a similar style to the prints on the flour sacks.
After printing I, well Greg scanned and uploaded them into Into Adobe illustrator and Photoshop to play around with and tidy up.
Then he used his media, web designer, coder magic to make my designs come to life in blog formation. Very, very clever, he is!!
To make the most of the we added a series of photos that change when you navigate to a new page, try it out.
Tell me which one is your favourite header picture.
That was the Bake Love rebrand. I hope you like the new design.
Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.
